Project 1

Fern Community Assembly in Correlation with Light Exposure and Topography

Dewi Suprobowati and Subekti Sulistyawati


We compared fern community assemblages in sites with different sun exposure and topography in the CTFS – AA forest dynamics plot at Lambir Hills National Park, Sarawak, Malaysia. We sampled seven plots in steep and flat areas respectively. Our results indicate that fern assemblages strongly vary with varying light exposure. In addition, there was a significance difference in the diversity of ferns between steep and flat areas.

Marine Invertebrate Diversity Along a Reef Gradient at Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park

Eka Fatmawati, Subekti Sulistyawati, Megan Bartlett, Toh Kok Ben, Ian McFadden, Ruchira Somaweera


We compared diversity of marine invertebrates along mid-reef, reef crest and reef slope regions in the coral reef at Tunku Abdul Rahman marine sanctuary at Gaya Island in Sabah, Malaysia. 12 plots were placed in 4 replications in each marine zonation. The most diversity in marine invertebrates was found in the reef crest area, possibly because this region contained the most coral cover, providing the most invertebrate microhabitats.
